peacock blue?

remember back when i ordered that free glidden paint?
i chose a peacock blue color--with every intention of painting my front door.

yep. a peacock blue front door.

unfortunately, that grand idea of mine wasn't well received with the paint boss at our house (john).

so i waited a few weeks for the idea to sink in.

really, i waited until i could show him every. single. picture. on the entire internet of a turquoise/peacock blue colored door.

eventually, it worked. the idea of a blue front door wasn't so scary after all.
and really, it's just paint. what's so scary about paint?

on friday, i saw edie at life in grace's post on her new peacock blue armoire and i knew. it was time.

i'm not sure it will stay for long. or if it will stay forever.
i'm fickle like that.
but for now, it's just the change we needed.

The outside of our house is a seaside blue, and we live in Ohio :). The guy that designed our house thought it should be dark green or brown if we wanted a "color" and was distressed, I think, about the blue until he saw it. He was thinking "traditional craftsman". I was thinking vintage "California cottage". It turned out great, and it is an easy way to describe our house to anyone trying to find it: the only blue house in the neighborhood. Now you can just say, our house is the one with the peacock blue door :)! I love it.
